Babs Reingold is a nationally-known mixed-media artist whose works and large-scale installations are displayed around the Country more often than they’re seen near her home in St. Petersburg.

Her work asks questions about poverty and climate change. She explores aging and animal rights through her creations. Human hair is a material she often uses in her work.

And Babs Reingold’s work is beautiful.

In this conversation sparked with passion and laughter, we explore Babs Reingold’s many inspirations, from growing up in public housing to Hurricane Katrina and the hair she pulled out of her brush today.
