Museum Exhibit Highlights Amy Winehouse’s Life


Camille Augustin / July 5, 2013

The Jewish Museum in London revealed the Amy Winehouse: A Family Portrait for viewing to the public this week.

In conjunction with the “Back to Black” singer’s brother, Alex Winehouse, and the exhibit’s curator, Liz Selby, the public will discover the fallen musician’s “Jewish-London” family upbringing, and “intimate items” such as her record collection and guitar.

“You get to see lots of exhibition related to her family life. In terms of her Jewishness, she was more of a cultural Jew, but she and her family did partake in religious ceremonies,” Selby said on Winehouse who passed away in 2011 from alcohol poisoning.

The exhibit will be open for viewing until September 15.
