NORWAY — To kick off the 2009 Norway Arts Festival there will be a lecture by Craig Whitaker titled “An Architect’s View: Inspirations and Opportunities” at 7 p.m. Thursday, July 9, at Norway Memorial Library. The talk will highlight the focus feature, “Looking Up in Norway: Weathervanes, Cupolas and Steeples,” for this year’s festival.
Whitaker will talk about the inspirations that architects find in various projects that result in the creation of design features of buildings. He will look at some of the tops of Norway’s Main Street buildings to illustrate the design opportunities found by architects in creating the structures.
Whitaker is a well-known local architect and a partner in the firm, Mills Whitaker Architects in Bridgton and  in Boston, Mass.
Whitaker’s talk is open to the public free. Following the talk there will be refreshments and a time for socializing to kick-off the Norway Arts Festival events taking place over the next two days.
