I did have a Valentine's Day themed photo for today, but I skipped it in favor of this one, which is much more interesting. This portrait of Barack Obama and Abraham Lincoln was created as a temporary art installation at the Smithsonian American Art Museum as a celebration of Obama's inauguration and Lincoln's 200th birthday. What's cool about it is its medium is cupcakes. That's right, cupcakes. 5,600 of them, all baked and iced by hand. After everyone had enough time to marvel at the creation, it was dismantled and the cupcakes were distributed to everyone present.
