The Storey Award is a community award created by Thriller! Chiller! and is presented in honor of journalist, friend and community activist Drew Storey who passed away unexpectedly in 2009. The recipient is awarded based upon their body of work, their selfless contribution and its impact on building community relationships, which promote and connect Michigan’s artists to a larger audience around the world.
“Joe (Voss) is a consummate professional, an endlessly knowledgeable resource and best friend an artist could ever hope to meet once in their life, let alone have that person available to consult with right here in Michigan,” explained Festival Director, Anthony E. Griffin. “Without a doubt, Joe embodies the spirit and passion that Drew championed in his search for meaning in life and it's a great honor for us to link these two gentlemen in memoriam to Drew's legacy.”
