The Jewish Museum London has announced that it will be celebrating the legacy of singer Amy Winehouse with a new art trail, a specially commissioned installation and the return of the exhibition Amy Winehouse: A Family Portrait.

Talking about the news Abigail Morris, Director of the Jewish Museum London said: “Aside from being an immensely talented, iconic and inspirational singer, Amy was also a Jewish girl from North London. It is fitting that the Jewish Museum in her beloved Camden Town should be the place to tell her story.”

From the 16th March, the museum will welcome back its acclaimed exhibition Amy Winehouse: A Family Portrait, which allows people to discover the woman behind the music. This is an immensely personal exhibition, featuring many of her personal belongings as well as family photographs.

Meanwhile, street artist Pegasus has created an installation titled ‘Love is a Losing Game‘ which was commissioned shortly after the singer’s death to honour her life and legacy on music.

From the 15th March, people will be able to take part in the Amy Street Art Trail  is a way for visitors to explore the part of London that Amy Winehouse called home for so many years. Throughout the trail will be Amy-themed street art that can be seen across Camden by artists such as Captain Kris, Mr Cenz, Philth and Amara Por Dios. If you are planning on taking part in the trail, it is advised you come as soon as you can, as due to the nature of  street art it can not be guaranteed that all works will remain for the duration.
