Nice to read articles about the School--I'm a grad from 1994. The allee is Carpinus betulus 'Fastigiata', and is one of my favourite parts of the garden. The eastward focal point is the front door of the residence building, so we students experienced that view every day.
The sculpture you mentioned is a relatively new entity, and I'm embarrassed to say I can't remember much about it, although I was there the day a time capsule was installed (during "A Day in the Garden", I believe, a few years back). It's a shame it's not labelled--I'm sure you're not the only one curious about the piece.
And a fun fact regarding the ice cream:
Back when I was a student, the guys would sometimes pick a few of the roses to butter up the girls in the ice cream shop. Great way to score free ice cream!
By the way, I'm in Lockport, not far from you. We should compare "dabbles" someday!

Sorry it's taken me so long to get back to you. Do you mind my asking if you are working in horticulture today? I just love it there and could go back every day, I think.

It's nice to talk to someone so close by. We should definitely do dabble together. There are so few members this close by.
