Wow! Cj Hendry “Public Pool” art installation in the desert.

Sandy Valley Ranch, Nevada – Renowned artist Cj Hendry is poised to make waves in the desert with her latest exhibition “Public Pool” debuting this spring. Opening April 5th to the 7th, the immersive homage pays tribute and reinvents the charismatic allure of Vegas hotel pool party aesthetics and pomp with Cj’s trademark flair and cheeky humor.

At the heart of “Public Pool” lies a colossal 50-meter-long inflatable pool, standing 3 feet tall. Through Cj’s imaginative lens, this seemingly ordinary structure becomes a refreshing splash reflective of the essence of Viva Las Vegas with all of its glitz and whimsical kitsch, while offering a surprising and playful oasis amidst the desert landscape. Complete with hot pink flamingos, neon inflatables, and colorful floral motifs, the exhibition invites visitors to indulge in the extravagant and fantastical.

Cj expresses her excitement about “Public Pool” and says,

I love the vivacity of Las Vegas and the duality of the desert together. I hope this exhibition sparks joy, connection, and a sense of wonder for everyone who dives into the experience.

To commemorate “Public Pool” a select number of limited-edition drawings and editions, each showcasing Cj’s extraordinary talent, and a collection of beach towels, floaties, sunscreen, totes, hats, t-shirts, and other pool-themed items will be available for purchase at CjHendryStudio.com on April 7th at 7pm EST.

About the artist

Cj Hendry Portrait by Cj Hendry Studio

Cj Hendry (b. 1988) is a New York-based artist originally from Brisbane, Australia. Cj transforms her fascination with contemporary material culture into large-scale, hyper-photorealistic drawings. Cj’s exhibits aren’t intended to be passively observed but, rather, actively experienced through engaging, fun, and thought-provoking exhibits. For her exhibit Monochrome, Cj and her team built an entire multi-room “home” inside a warehouse with each room entirely monochrome-colored from floor to ceiling and everything in between. For Rorschach, guests jumped through a gigantic bouncy house maze in order to reach and finally view the impressive series. Each Cj Hendry exhibit, from Miami to Melbourne, draws massive crowds with attendees waiting in line for several hours and, in the end, everyone leaves more enriched than when they arrived. With her celebrity clientele – and many works in private collections – Cj’s waitlist is now well over 3,000 collectors with a wait time of up to five years to get their hands on a piece.
