John Randal Nelson
Standing 26 feet high, One-Eyed Jack
is a painted steel jackrabbit sculpture
by Tempe-based artist John Randall
Nelson. The 20,000-pound sculpture
is found on the corner of Marshall Way
and Indian School Road, welcoming
residents and visitors to the art galleries,
shops, and restaurants in Old Town
Scottsdale’s Arts District. One-Eyed
Jack stands as a reminder of Marshall
Way’s history and a nod toward its
future. Like Lewis Carroll’s fictional
white rabbit, the sculpture beckons
