As “Flickskinny” co-creator Jeremy Long says, all we can hope is that Hollywood doesn’t stop making bad movies. The silver screen movie spill comic is celebrating its 15th year with a special retrospective installation, on display through September. Parodying museums, co-illustrators Long and Clint McElroy are transforming Flicker into an exhibition hall hosting the life and times of their comic, complete with a showcase of their creative process, a montage of cameos that have appeared throughout the years and a collection of their overall favorites. After selling “Flickskinny” at Vision Video for a few years, Long and McElroy became a weekly staple of Flagpole in 2000 and continue to go strong. The celebration, which kicks off at 8 p.m., is headlined by the appropriately named cover band Guided By Guided By Voices.
