During her time as a Luminary, Ives-Flores participated as a Polly Thayer Starr Guest Artist for a three month mini residency in the Bertucci Education Studio. She created a collaborative two-part installation prompting guests to explore the Museum collection and the "eco-system" of the art world through a new lens. Ives-Flores also worked alongside William and Lia Poorvu Curator of the Collection Christina Nielson on a custom digital hashtag mosaic re-creating John Singer Sargent’s 1888 portrait of Isabella for the Henry James and American Painting exhibition.
