We can work and interact with someone for years before discovering a commonly-held interest or non-obvious quirk. This is especially the case when hobbies seem unrelated to careers, an instance at the focus of the Memorial Art Gallery's series, "Hidden Passions: Inspiring Conversations about Hyphenated Lives." The next iteration of the series is Thursday, April 9, and will feature two creative Rochesterians: Agustin Ramos, who works as a private detective, but also builds cuatro guitars; and Emma Lo, a UR medical student who spends her free moments painting portraits of the homeless.
"Hidden Passions: Inspiring Conversations about Hyphenated Lives" will host Ramos and Lo on Thursday, April 9, at the Memorial Art Gallery, 500 University Avenue. 7 p.m. The event is free with gallery admission, which is half price from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. mag.rochester.edu.
