While Niagara is a piece that gives voice to the reality of the urban poor, it's also a beacon of hope. The work happened because, Kreiter acknowledges, people — like the Renoir Hotel's owners and Urban Solutions, the SOMA-based economic development nonprofit — have been supportive of the project. Pointing out that she started working on the piece before the advent of Occupy Wall Street, she observes that "everything is collapsing, and yet in some places there are people who try to pull things forward." *
