Members of Austin's art community showed off their best 1920s styles during The Blanton Museum of Art's Great Gasby themed B scene. The Blanton's atrium was filled with dancing flappers and stylish partners sporting three piece suits and straw hats. People appeared to travel back in time, swinging, clapping and dancing the Lindy to Austin's ragtime band, White Ghost Shivers.
