Poetry in the Windows is a project of the Arroyo Arts Collective, a grassroots non-profit organization of visual, literary and performing artists in the Northeast Area of Los Angeles. The aim of the two projects organized by the Collective (in 1995 and 1997) is to bring contemporary poetry to the public and passersby. Funded by a grant from Lannan Foundation and supported by the Highland Park Chamber of Commerce, Poetry in the Windows placed poem posters in the windows of merchants along Figueroa Street, the main shopping district of Highland Park. Twenty poets were selected by a jury of Los Angeles poets: Carol Lem, Bill Mohr, and AliciaVogl-Saenz. Poem posters were displayed with translations into one of the many languages spoken in the neighborhood.
