About Immersed / getting your feet wet

Now in its fourth year, the Central Florida Aquarium Society (CFLAS) presents Immersed, Orlando's premier aquatic art show, featuring aquatic-themed art utilizing a myriad of mediums, including paintings, sculpture, metalwork, and live aquarium installations.

Conservation, management, and care of aquatic livestock is very important to our organization and our tens of thousands of members. For this reason, we strive to use aquacultured livestock that is farmed locally rather than collected from the wild in all of our displays.

Every year, Immersed continues to grow in participation and attendance. Our month-long show is host to over 50 artists and exhibitors who showcase over $100,000 of artwork and aquatic installations for over 1,500 guests opening night, a combined total of more than 20,000 guests throughout the show's duration.

All artwork and aquariums are available for purchase. There are also silent auctions and online raffles taking place throughout the event. We invite you to join us and #GetImmersed!
