CARSON CITY — Nevada’s first lady Kathleen Sandoval and Virginia Vogel, the woman who designed Sandoval’s two gowns for the 2011 Nevada Inaugural Balls, will be honored at the Nevada State Museum at 6 p.m. today. The public is invited to attend a free reception for the museum’s new exhibit, “Dress and Designer,” featuring the first lady’s inaugural ball gowns.  Vogel will discuss her work in the museum’s South Changing Gallery at 6:45 p.m.

Vogel created two different ensembles for Sandoval to wear to the governor’s inauguration. The skirts are the same for each, with subtle jeweled differences. The bodices and jackets are unique. The first lady wore the different ensembles to the Reno and Las Vegas events. Sandoval donated the one she wore in Las Vegas to the Nevada State Museum in Carson City and kept the other as her own.

The Nevada State Museum is at 600 N. Carson St. in Carson City. For more information, contact Jan Loverin at 687-6173.
