A Destination

John Philip Falter Museum opened in historical downtown Falls City, NE on May 1, 2015 in the lobby of the former Richardson County Bank at 1622 Stone Street. After graduating from Falls City High School in 1928, John Philip Falter went on to become a world-renowned illustrator. The museum features: his Philadelphia studio (on loan from the Nebraska State Historical Society Museum), his 129 “Saturday Evening Post” covers, original Jazz works and prints, as well as other works on loan from local collectors.

 

The John Philip Falter Museum currently features:

A replica of John's Philadelphia Studio is on loan from the Nebraska State Historical Society.

John's Saturday Evening Post Covers are available to view based on season.
The museum is currently featuring his Spring/Summer themed covers.

 

It has been my hope to record what is probably the last of the great tradition of farming, of river life, of the domestic life so closely related to it, and of the small bits of peace and serenity that only exist close to nature. In treating what is, to me, a profoundly appealing subject, I have tried to be completely impersonal; it has been my wish to observe and record, to document and to commend the poetic way of life I have observed in many parts of America, from the Amish men of Pennsylvania to the cat fishermen of the Missouri River.
— John Philip Falter
