On May 9th, Barack Obama declared his support for gay marriage, prompting both hysterical attacks and elaborate praises like Newsweek's most recent cover. In honor of this historic moment, we've compiled a small selection of rainbow art, from complicated Rube Goldberg vandal-bike-machines to minimalistic window smudges, from rainbow illusions in strung wire to pancakes. Enjoy.
