Are there any flatbed scanners out there with support for OS X yet? I need something both for scanning in art and for document management. If there's more than one, I'd want recommendations.

Canon got some flatbend scanners with osx support, but they are still in beta.

Anyway, my canon scannor works great

i got an epson one for christmas and (as far as i know) doesn't work in x yet. though it IS at home and i'm at school.

you'd think that scanners, printers, etc would be some of the first things to get support...

I bought an epson colour 580 (talking low end)
But epson only support the 900 something an up and I was a little pissed off at that
they have to support consumer printers as well, its just not fare

All up in your bidness
Some of Canon's current scanners have beta OS X drivers, although they only work in Photoshop and Office (not GraphicConverter). They can also be used in Classic, which works well but is probably not very desirable.
