London's Jewish Museum Launches Crowdfunding Drive for Amy Winehouse Art Trail

By Jessica Weinstein

The Jewish Museum in London has set out to raise £17,000 in a month to fund an Amy Winehouse street art trail around Camden. The 30-day crowdfunding drive was launched yesterday to secure the money for a series of small artworks in the singer’s former neighbourhood in the London borough. Fans following the trail will be led to the museum on Albert Street. Artists including Captain Kris and Pegasus – who created the image of Amy as a Fallen Angel shortly after her death in 2011 – will contribute to the art on the trail, with proposed sites including Camden High Street and four locations near Dingwalls music venue.
