New Amy Winehouse art trail in Camden Town

Murals mark the return of 'Amy Winehouse: A Family Portrait' exhibition to the Jewish Museum

16 March, 2017 — By William McLennan

FRESH works of art dedicated to the Amy Winehouse have sprung up across Camden Town.

The “street art trail” was commissioned by the Jewish Museum London in Albert Street to mark the re-opening of its exhibition Amy Winehouse: A Family Portrait. Locations to look out for Amy include Miller Street, Lidlington Place and Stucley Place.

The exhibition celebrates the life of the award-winning musician, who died aged 27 at her home in Camden Square in July 2011. The museum’s director, Abigail Morris, said it was fitting that the exhibition was back in Winehouse’s “beloved Camden Town,” adding: “Our street art trail is an exciting new way to explore Amy’s impact on her local community and we are keen to celebrate her legacy through the work of these outstanding street artists.”

The street art is expected to be in place until early June, while Amy Winehouse: A Family Portrait runs until September 24.
