In 2013, the Jewish Museum London collaborated with Amy Winehouse’s older brother, Alex, to create an intimate and moving exhibition, Amy Winehouse: A Family Portrait. In Spring 2017, the exhibition is returning to the museum, following an international tour. With your help, we can build on this return, celebrating both Amy’s life and the Camden that she loved, by creating a street art trail for you to enjoy.

With your support, we want to work with Global Street Art to create a number of street art installations throughout the Camden Town area. Artists such as Mr Cenz, Amara Por Dios, Philth and Captain Kris will create a fantastic, colourful and diverse array of new art that will decorate the walls of Camden and celebrate Amy in their own unique style.

The trail, which will be available for free from the museum’s website, will help people to explore this iconic area, including Camden Markets, local music venues and the high street which connects Camden to London’s Euston and Kings Cross stations.

It will lead to a newly commissioned work by Pegasus, in the Jewish Museum’s Welcome Gallery. Pegasus is perhaps best known for Fallen Angel, an image of Amy Winehouse on the side of a Camden information centre that was whitewashed over before being repainted and ‘opened’ by Winehouse's mother Janis in December 2013. Pegasus’ new piece in the museum will accompany Amy Winehouse: A Family Portrait throughout spring.

We need your support to make this project happen. Together, we can celebrate Amy Winehouse and the Camden she loved. Please help us make this happen and get some brilliant rewards in return.

If you have any technical problems when donating, please email arthappens@artfund.org.
