In celebration of Amy Winehouse’s 30th birthday, an exhibit dedicated to her life and career is coming to London’s Jewish museum this summer.

Amy Winehouse: A Family Portrait debuts July 3 at the Jewish Museum in Camden and runs until September 15, the day after Winehouse’s birthday. The exhibit will include unseen photographs of the singer, along with personal belongings like her guitar, record collection and one of her GRAMMY awards from the 2008 show where she took home five statues for Back To Black. 

Winehouse’s family, who helped curate the show, explained to Vogue UK why they decided to team up with the museum.

“Amy was someone who was incredibly proud of her Jewish-London roots,” Alex Winehouse, Amy’s brother, said. “We weren’t religious, but we were traditional. I hope, in this most fitting of places, that the world gets to see this other side, not just to Amy, but to our typical Jewish family.”

A documentary is also in the works to chronicle the singer’s career and untimely death from alcohol poisoning. No release date for the film has been announced as of yet.
