Beginning in 1997, Gilliam began showing these at Klein Art Works in Chicago, and in his Solo Exhibition: Gilliam in 3-D at the Kreeger Museum, Washington, DC the following year. Other examples can be found in the collections of Smith College Museum of Art, Northhampton, MA, and the Department of Veteran Affairs, Philadelphia. Binstock p. 138.
