Bartlesville, OK – In a competition to become the next Wright Chef at Copper Restaurant and Bar located in the Frank Lloyd Wright-designed Price Tower in Bartlesville, Albert “Nook” Ducre has been selected.
Ducre, born and raised in New Orleans, Louisiana, previously worked as the executive sous chef at Broussard’s in New Orleans and as the sous chef for Pier 424 Seafood Market and The American Sector, also in New Orleans.
“I am very honored to be selected as the Wright Chef,” said Ducre. “The competition was fierce but I enjoyed getting to know the other chefs and learning more about The Price Tower and Bartlesville.” Ducre was selected by a panel of community leaders and chefs from Tulsa and Bartlesville. He plans to focus on cooking technique and ingredients to bring a New Orleans flare to the offering at Copper later this year.
The Wright Chef is a unique position developed by Price Tower Arts Center as part of its dynamic artist in residence programs. The winner has the opportunity to have creative control of the menu and operational control of the restaurant and kitchen for the period of one year. Ducre will be mentored by three Tulsa-area chefs who are volunteering their time including Miranda Kaiser, Lia Lewis and Callie Farish.
This educational, hands-on program was established with two goals in mind – to provide an inspirational culinary experience for Price Tower and Copper patrons and to provide an emerging chef the once-in-a-lifetime, risk-free chance to find out if they have what it takes to own and operate a successful restaurant business. The program is designed to be a challenge both professionally and creatively and give the Wright Chef a taste of real-world restaurant ownership.

Frida Kahlo (1907–1954) is considered one of the most significant artists of the twentieth century. Her body of work, consisting of some 250 paintings and drawings, is at once intensely personal and universal in scope and relies heavily on the natural world. The exhibition Frida Kahlo’s Garden transports visitors to Kahlo’s garden to experience her world as she did.
Select programming is made possible in part by the Oklahoma Arts Council, which receives support from the State of Oklahoma and the National Endowment for the Arts.
