Phil Solomon’s critically acclaimed triptych film installation American Falls (2000–2012, 55 mins.) was commissioned by the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., and inspired by their monumental painting by Frederic Edwin Church, Niagara (1857). Solomon draws from dozens of twentiethand early-twenty-first-century examples of documentary footage, films, and music to explore the identity of a country through its struggles—from the rise and fall of leaders to the sinking of the Titanic, the gold rush, the Civil Rights Movement, and the atomic bomb.

American Falls is on view on continuous loop in the Hood Auditorium according to the following schedule: Tuesdays and Thursdays, noon–3:00 P.M. Wednesdays, noon–6:00 P.M.
Unforeseen circumstances occasionally require a temporary schedule change. Please call 603-646-2900 to confirm.
