One option is parking at a parking meter. With the exception of the parking meters on Monroe Center, they are free on weekends.

A second option is parking in one of the numerous parking ramps around the art museum. Ellis Parking runs a number of such ramps, as you can see by the numbers indicating the ramps around the GRAM (represented by the heart):

Finally, if you are staying in a hotel downtown, many of the hotels are within walking distance to the GRAM if you would like to park your car there and walk to the reception.
