Ditko Inspired

Show us how the Legendary Steve Ditko inspired you!

The Bottle Works Ethnic Arts Center in Johnstown, PA, hometown of Spider-man co-creator, creator of Doctor Strange, and countless other comic book characters, Steve Ditko, in collaboration with Mr. Ditko’s family is hosting a Hometown Heroes-Steve Ditko Exhibit in our Main Gallery Space from July 15 – September 11, 2021.

The Ditko Inspired Art Auction

This your chance to own a piece of art from the Ditko “Inspired” Exhibit!

Originals, prints, posters, and books, we have a little bit of something for everyone. Over 30 pieces will be on the auction block, with more to be announced. There may even be some surprises from the actual Hometown Heroes-Steve Ditko Exhibit included!?!

What better way to bring an end to the Hometown Heroes-Steve Ditko and the Ditko “Inspired” Exhibits? Admission to the auction is free, and in person attendees will have opportunities that won’t be available on the online platform. Online bidding begins 8/28/2021 @ 10 AM, and will conclude on Sept 11 at 8:30 PM during the live auction. In person attendees should still register for the online auction as bidding will occur via your mobile device. You can access the online auction @ https://www.biddingowl.com/Auction/home.cfm?auctionID=28200

Items will be shipped, frameless in a poster tube when possible, and insured, via the United States Postal Service no later than October 1, 2021.

Auction proceeds will go to support the Steve Ditko Public Art Initiative and the Hero Initiative.

This is a charity auction, and all winning bids will be tax deductible as a charitable donation.
