10. Eris and the Golden Apple by Danny Donya, West Palm Beach

Eris and The Golden Apple is a mural in Downtown West Palm Beach painted by Miami-born artist Danny Donya. Located on the east side of The Alexander building, this seven-story mural depicts a mysterious moment in Greek mythology. The mural depicts Eris—the Greek goddess of discord—with bright green eyes, freckles, teal lips, and wavy hair. With her curious facial expression, Eris seems to be pondering a decision somehow connected to the shiny golden apple (The Golden Apple of Discord) she’s holding in her hand: Drop it or not? The mural highlights a rich story in Greek mythology connected with a crashed apple and the start of the Trojan War.
