Geppi’s Entertainment Museum is proud to host exciting exhibitions throughout the year which celebrate America’s pop culture heritage.
PLEASE NOTE: Exhibits and displays are subject to change without notice.
In 2006, comic book and pop culture collector and entrepreneur Stephen A. Geppi, CEO of Diamond Comic Distributors, opened a museum dedicated to the celebration of American pop culture and entertainment. Now GEM has turned its sights to the very city it calls home by establishing a Hall of Fame in its “Pioneer Spirit” room. This galleryhad its grand opening on March 26, 2011, and Geppi's Entertainment Museum wants visitors, pop culture collectors and fans to be a part of the excitement - and let us know who they'd like to see included in later updates.
This unique exhibition includes personal items donated by inductees and other memorabilia, all focused on celebrating the cultural contributions of “Charm City.”
“I’ve been called Baltimore’s biggest cheerleader,” said Geppi. “Now through GEM, I get to show everybody how many wonderful entertainers, leaders and other important pop culture icons came from this wonderful city. This is about Baltimore’s place in the pop culture landscape.”
Clicking here will allow visitors to submit nominations for inclusion in this one-of-a-kind exhibit. In 150 words or less, fans can describe the person and tell GEM why that person should be inducted into the “Pioneer Spirit” Hall of Fame. Three times a year GEM will select three of these suggestions and the final nominees will appear on the website for all visitors to make a final vote. The voting process will take place three times a year, for a total of three annual inductees.
