Hello.

What sort of commonly accessible material can block harmful UV from a 150W Xenon arc lamp, without blocking much of visible light?

Lamp relative spectrum (a bit around 250nm, growing to a lot at 400nm):

Enough UV should be blocked for the lamp to be usable as a regular household light source.

UV filtering on the cheap

Try a piece of polycarbonate. It's dirt cheap and it inherently filters out most UV.
Even the cheapest sunglasses can claim to block 100% of UV because they just use PC lenses.

Common trade name being Lexan.
