Summer in City is a community organization that brings youth volunteers to Detroit to spend the summer painting murals, planting gardens, and educating inner-city children. Falik said that from the outset its intention was to "change the impact that volunteers had on Detroit — and the impact that the city had on them."
Falik's retrospective discussed the recent celebration of Summer in the City's tenth anniversary, which centered around painting a two-story tall mural of a scene from The Lorax. In the first decade of the group's existence, its volunteer membership has grown to more than twenty times its original size, and it has gained a permanent home. Falik is optimistic about its future.
