Davidson's Dream tells the story of agricultural engineering in an allegorical narrative through people doing exceptional things in extraordinary ways. It represents the interconnection of the landscape, crops, waterways, livestock and structures, balanced by interdisciplinary teams of people in agriculture and biosystems engineering. The pastoral composition as a whole, with its lack of restraint, stylized spaces, and eccentric images parallels the college’s unrestrained, remarkable response to challenges now and in the future. Davidson's Dream is the focal point in the large Davidson Conference Room in the state-of-the-art Biorenewables Building on the ISU campus. In collaboration with Rebecca Ekstrand
