City of Calgary - BACONFEST
Ed Bacon is the only city planner to grace the cover page of time magazine in 1964, and on the cover of Life in 1965. While he may be known as the father of Kevin Bacon, the impact of Edmund’s work helped shape the landscape of the City of Philadelphia, where he served as the head of the planning commission for two decades beginning in 1949. In retirement, he undertook an extensive four part series titled “Understanding Cities” beginning in 1981. Baconfest is an exploration of this film series.
