A few of Columbus' own top chefs will battle it out for culinary glory at this year's Chef Showdown, a benefit for the Women's Board of the Columbus Museum of Art. Their inspiration? French paintings from the museum's collection, including works from Matisse, Pierre, Gerome and Gleizes.

Chefs Richard Blondin of the Refectory, Jon Bruckelmeyer of Brio Polaris, Erin Chittum of M and Donald Wood of the museum's Art Palette Cafe will create masterful art-inspired dishes to be enjoyed by guests.

Tickets are $150 each, and proceeds will go toward education programming at the Center for Creativity, the museum's new intergenerational learning space.

What: Chef Showdown When: 6:30 p.m. Friday, March 12 Where: St. Charles Preparatory School, Bexley Web: columbusmuseum.org
