The Police Poetry & Photo Calendar is part of the Arts & Equity Initiative, which aims to improve municipal government through the arts. Portland is the pilot city for the nonprofit program, which hopes to expand next year and pair municipal employees elsewhere with artists to help them learn their crafts.
Marty Pottenger, the program's executive director, said she's been in touch with people in Chicago, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Atlanta, San Antonio, New Orleans and San Jose, Calif., about launching similar programs in those cities.
