I don't know, Do you?

I found this painting on the walls of New Jersey Performing arts center in downtown Newark, a town southwest of where I live. Many other paintings were also around, but this truly takes the cake. Does anybody recognize what this is?

Between 600 and 200 BC, the ancient Athenians created western theatre. These are the comedy and tragedy masks worn in Greece around 500-300 BC. These masks were used to show a change of mood and have been adopted as a symbol of modern theatre.

By the way, now that I look at that (part of a mural painted on a Newark police station opposite NJPAC) more closely, it seems to me that the faces are those of Abbott (smiling) and Costello (crying), a famous NJ comedy team.
