The trail will take vis­i­tors on a tour around Wine­house­themed street art, past her house in Cam­den Square and other land­marks, to a new in­stal­la­tion by the street artist Pegasus.

The exhibition runs from March 16 to Septem­ber 24 at the Jewish Mu­seum in Cam­den. The street art trail will be avail­able from March 15 un­til June 4.
