William Falkler Archives

You might call this the largest cardboard recycling project ever in York County. It means Wayne White’s ‘FOE’ exhibit will live to fight another day. York College of Pennsylvania students carried the dismantled cardboard-and-wood exhibit or installation from MarketView Arts on West Philadelphia Street to LSC Design on North George. The exhibit by the noted White showed everyday life for the two days that the Confederate Army occupied York in late-June 1863. The exhibit ended, and its figures will reside in storage at LSC for display at yet undetermined places in York County.

This photo of William A. Falkler was published in connection with a retrospective exhibit at York, Pa.’s, Bradley Academy in 2005. ‘Just because it’s a retrospective doesn’t mean the artist isn’t still creating fresh work,’ the caption stated. It quoted the artist, then 79, saying, ‘I’ll paint until I die. It’s part of my life.’
