In line with other artist IDs for museums, I would like to add a major Canadian museum. The m'm catalog is already created (link above). Outriggr (talk) 22:16, 15 June 2018 (UTC)

    @William Graham: Thanks, but it wasn't a scraper. The web site isn't suited to it (as far as I can tell). I found a flat list of all the artist names and converted them to the URL format. BTW how much consensus is required for uncontroversial properties? It'd be nice to get started.... I am looking at uncontroversial requests sitting with 4 or 5 supports including the nominator.
