Emelie Gevalt will serve as the new Curator of Folk Art at the American Folk Art Museum (AFAM) beginning in November 2019. Gevalt is currently working toward her doctorate in art history at the University of Delaware. In 2017, she graduated from the University of Delaware/Winterthur Program earning her master's degree in American material culture.

 

In 2018, Gevalt published her article "Revisiting Taunton: Robert Crosman, Esther Stevens Brazer, and the Changing Interpretations of Taunton Chests" in the Chipstone Foundation's American Furniture. The article is based on her University of Delaware/Winterthur Program master's thesis. Gevalt examined the 18th-century origins of painted Massachusetts chests and explored how their meanings have shifted over time, as they became objects of nostalgia for early 20th-century Americana collectors.
