Symetra celebrated the opening of Climate Pledge Arena at Seattle Center with the installation of a commissioned artwork. Symetra SVP Trinity Parker joined Seattle artist Aramis O. Hamer to debut the 6- by 9-foot acrylic on canvas painting in the arena's 11,000 square foot Symetra Club event space. Symetra is the first founding partner of the Climate Pledge Arena and the Seattle Kraken, the NHL's newest franchise. Home to the Kraken and the WNBA Seattle Storm, also a Symetra partner, the Climate Pledge Arena is the first net zero certified arena in the world. Hamer is a self-taught visual artist and muralist whose subject matter is inspired by the cosmos, music, nature, divine femininity, and the complexities throughout the Black culture. Those themes are reflected in the Symetra Club piece, with visual references to its Pacific Northwest setting, the Kraken's tentacles, and Symetra's vision. Symetra Life Insurance is a subsidiary of Symetra Financial Corporation, a diversified financial services company based in Bellevue.
