Arlon Bayliss trained at the Royal College of Art in London England and his gallery glass artwork is in museums and private collections worldwide. His public art projects include community-based, collaborative, outdoor works and large-scale interior architectural installations using dynamic forms and compositions in steel, glass and light. He is a broadly accomplished artist, designer, educator and creativity-training consultant.
In 1990 he moved to the US to establish the glass program at Anderson University, Indiana. He designed for Rosenthal Glass in Germany for 10 years, and Blenko Glass in West Virginia for 9 years. Since 2014 he has concentrated his professional practice on commissioned public artwork.
Bayliss’s architectural art projects include monumental outdoor works such as Helios and The Crystal Arch Project in Anderson, Indiana, and large-scale indoor installations such as Light, Words, Life, for the Indianapolis Central Library, Between Infinite Stars… at the Indianapolis Hebrew Congregation, and Flight Wave, for the Indianapolis International Airport. In 2016 he completed Seeds Of Light, a community based art initiative and sculpture for the Town of Speedway.
His work was featured in “200 Years Of Indiana Art – A Cultural Legacy” at the Indiana State Museum and was awarded Indy Chamber’s prestigious Honor Award for Public Art in 2017.
He recently completed Beacon Bloom, a 36-foot tall, outdoor public art sculpture for the City of Carmel, Indiana and is currently working on several commissions including one for Simon Property Group to produce a 400 foot-long aerial sculpture for the Circle Centre Mall central public area renovation in downtown Indianapolis.
